"This is a variation of a popular Indian Dish known as Poha Bataka (potato) or vice versa. Poha is flattened rice used in various different recipes, and this being one of them. A warm dish that can be made for breakfast, brunch, or even a snack. It has both spice and a zesty tang that can be satisfying on many levels. In addition, chewy pasta adds a perfect touch! Instead of using the flattened rice, I use pasta. Brown Rice Pasta to be exact and the end result is mouth-watering."
